The Valley Railroad Company, operating the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat, has been serving the lower Connecticut River Valley since 1971. Our company’s mission is to keep alive the rich mechanical, industrial, and transportation heritage of our state through the ongoing operation of vintage steam and diesel locomotives, passenger coaches, and the facilities and infrastructure to support these. We welcome visitors from throughout the state of Connecticut, the New England region, and from all over the world to ride our railroad, relax aboard our riverboat, and visit our unique facilities.
